“Let’s not talk about me, let’s talk about you … or cycling, or drones, or the latest Netflix addiction” is Ben’s response when prodded to talk about himself. Ben’s not one to brag about his 20 years experience covering some of the biggest events in Australia’s history. Or the times he photographed Charlize Theron, Miranda Kerr, or Slash. Or landing the front cover of Capture magazine.
Photojournalist for the Melbourne Herald Sun and mX (1994 – 2012) Ben has documented the best and worst of society, on film and digital photography.
When a story is unravelling, Ben comes to life, capturing every detail and emotion, recording that moment in time. Ben loves available light, using it to highlight colours, texture, personality and lines. He’ll climb, crawl, and wade to find the right angle.
In 2004, his love of people and parties attracted him to wedding photography and he’s never looked back.
